Malaysia’s First Anti-Stalking Trial

Last week, Malaysia held its first trial under the anti-stalking law. Mohamad Safiq was on trial for stalking photographer Acacia Mardinana Daud for eight years. However, Safiq was acquitted and discharged by the court, as the court ruled that he was of unsound mind. It is important to note that Safiq was ordered to be held at Hospital Bahagia Ulu Kinta in Perak at the pleasure of the Sultan of Selangor.

So, what does the court ruling mean? What is its potential impact on future stalking cases?
